Finley's last few days in Malta

After seeing the wreck of the Rozi, I was excited to hear that Corsair Diving were taking me to see the wreck of the mighty Um-El-Faroud.  The Faroud was scuttled in 1998 and has become one of the best wrecks in Malta, if not Europe.  I saw hundreds of barracuda, a ray and explored the wreck which has now split in two.  Just after leaving the wreck I met Mr John Dory, he was a very interesting chap.  He said that he often comes in the shallows around Malta once the water is a bit cooler, during the summer he travels around the deeper water.

Finley's last few days in Malta

 

On my last day Melita and Kevin took me to the Silent City of Mdina.  It is a medieval walled town which used to be the capital of Malta.  After a walk around the city we went to Fontanella Tea Garden, which is famous for their cakes and the fabulous views over Malta.  After having a coffee and a piece of delicious chocolate cake we continued around Mdina.  The views were amazing, I could see from St Paul's Islands all the way to Marsaxlokk in the south of the island, and even the Mosta dome.

 

I am sad to say goodbye to Corsair Diving Malta, but I am looking forward to my next adventure.  I'm leaving Malta today to see my friends in Italy.  Malta is pretty close to Italy, so hopefully I will not be tired when I arrive.

 

Please have a look at some photos of my time in Malta which I have uploaded to the image gallery.

 

See you in Italy......
